This past weekend, two of rock n’ roll heavyweights, Joe Bonamassa and Neal Schon (Journey) sat in on each others’ Las Vegas performances.
On Saturday, October 26th, Journey delivered the final performance of a sold-out, 9-show residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Toward the end of the band’s performance, lead guitarist Neal Schon welcomed blues powerhouse Joe Bonamassa to the stage. The two collaborated on the Journey classic “Lovin’ Touchin’ Squeezin”, exchanging leads for an extended version of the popular tune.
The following night, Sunday, October 27th, Joe Bonamassa once again took the stage at The Colosseum for his own headlining performance. During his show, Bonamassa returned the favor by welcoming Neal Schon to the stage for their second live collaboration in as many nights. The two dug deep into the B.B. King song, “Nobody Loves Me But My Mother”. The crowd went wild as Schon soared with heavy blues guitar riffs along with his friend Joe trading licks back and forth.
